Desktops, laptops, notebook and now the hybrids, Lenovo for quite a while now has been offering its fans the best in the world of hybrids, and this time it is the brand new Lenovo ThinkPad Twist making it to the center-stage. Packed with a whole bunch of ground-breaking features, Lenovo already tags it as the best Hybrid ever created. But, is it? Lets find out.
- 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5 processor
- Microsoft Windows 8 Operating System
- 4 GB DDR3 RAM
- 12.5 inch display
- Intel HD4000 Graphics
Lets begin with the design. In terms of looks, the Twist seems to cross all boundaries. The corners are slightly rounded and the lid is impressively thin despite of it being a touch-screen. Another amazing feature that is sure to catch your eye is the modernized keyboard. At 0.8-inch, this one is surely one of the thinnest laptops ever produced. The display can rotate at up to 180 degrees via the hinge located at the center just below the screen. If you wish to share your content with a small group, simply twist the screen rather than turning around the entire laptop. You can also twist the lid in a way that it completely covers up the keyboard but with the screen facing out.
When it comes to hardware, the gadget has got something really fabulous pumped in. The 12.5 inch IPS multi-touch screen features an anti-scratch Gorilla glass protection. A powerful 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5 processor along with an 8 GB of DDR3 RAM promises you a much better performance. 500 GB of SSD means enough space to dump in all your crucial data.
The built-in 4960 mAh battery will keep you going for about 4.5 hours. That’s pretty decent. Overall, the laptop weighs just 1.60 kg, which is truly amazing. The Twist runs on Microsoft Windows 8 Operating System and comes preloaded with a bundle of apps such as Evernote, Amazon Kindle, BlueStacks, AccuWeather, Skype and Fruit Ninja.
The ThinkPad Twist comes with a price tag of Rs. 71,000. Now, if you think that’s too hot to handle, don’t forget that the gadget packs in some of the best hardware. So, a price that high is truly justified. The Twist is not the first hybrid from Lenovo. Earlier, the company launched the IdeaPad Yoga 13 and the IdeaPad Yoga 11. With ThinkiPad Twist, Lenovo plans to move a step forward. But will the gadget turn out to be the best ever hybrid laptop ever created? Well, you’ll probably have to wait and watch.
